Cocoa Carrot and Earl Grey Cupcakes Recipe

Sometimes I'm inspired by a fabulous meal at a restaurant, a dish on tv, or something that a friend whips up. Other times, like today, I find ingredients in front of me that I have to put to use. This recipe definitely falls into the latter category. I was determined to use the shredded carrots that remained from my morning freshly-pressed carrot juice. I decided to combine them with cocoa and Earl Grey tea and make earthy, complex cupcakes.

I think the combination worked beautifully. My husband Lulu loves tea so I wanted to incorporate this ingredient in the sweets. I used it as the icing of mini-cupcakes.

Cooking is an expression of love, so it doesn't matter how elaborate your dish is or how many hours you devote to it, what's really important is the matter in which you prepare it. Put your heart and soul into cooking, and I guarantee you that those who will enjoy the product of your efforts will appreciate it.

Pineapple Carrot Cake Recipe

Since the New Year, I took our juicer out and it's been sitting on the counter so we can have freshly-made juice every day. Today I extracted juice from carrots, and since I hate wasting, I used the carrot shreds and baked a cake.

To ensure the cake was moist, I added crushed pineapple (I regularly cut whole fresh pineapple as a snack) and used creme fraiche that my friend Steve from the Milk Pail in Mountain View gave us. Steve just introduced me to a new product his friend Warren from Snowville Creamery from Ohio sent over. It’s amazing! If you’re in the Bay Area, definitely take some time to visit the Milk Pail and try out some of the unique products only they carry.
